Phonolog Reports – New Releases

Week of February 14, 1972

Caught my eye:

THE FIRESIGN THEATRE – I Think We’re All Bozos On This Bus (Columbia CQ-30737) QUAD version

HAWKWIND – In Search Of Space (U.A. UAS-5567) (CD)

JIM CAPALDI – Oh How We Danced (Island / Capitol SW-9314) (LP)

DONOVAN – The World of Donovan (Physical – Spiritual) (Epic KEG-31210) double LP

Quad comedy LP’s?  OK.  We go all spacey with the 2nd U.S. Hawkwind LP.  Traffic’s Jim Capaldi gets a solo album (even before Steve Winwood got a real solo album).  And I am not 100% certain that this Donovan album actually came out in the U.S. – my copy of it is Dutch, and I do not recall ever seeing a U.S. copy!  It’s essentially an Epic label 2LP ‘best of’.

Also of interest:


JAMES LAST – Music From Across The Way (Polydor 24-5505) (CD)

STONE THE CROWS – Teenaged Licks (Polydor 24-5020)

AL GREEN – Let’s Stay Together (Hi SHL 32070)

EZ hits from Jackson Browne (the “Doctor My Eyes” LP!) and James Last (my dad had this album).  2nd U.S. album for Stone The Crows.  Big time R&B hit for the Rev. Al Green.

Notable singles:

LEON RUSSELL – A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall b/w A Song For You (Shelter 7316)

COMMANDER CODY & THE LOST PLANET AIRMEN – Hot Rod Lincoln (Paramount 0146)

FAMILY – Larf & Sing b/w Between Blue and Me (U.A. 50882)

THE NEWBEATS – On Pretty Woman b/w Remember Love (Hickory 1624)

THE SWEET – Poppa Joe (Bell 45184)

Dandy AM A-side for Commander Cody; Leon Russell single from his 2nd Shelter album “Leon Russell & The Shelter People”; A Family single from “Fearless”; I guess The Newbeats stayed with Hickory from “Bread & Butter” all the way to ’72 (at very least); glam rock from The Sweet – in early ’72!

    Can’t say Jackson Browne was ever “of interest!” How did he ever shack up with Nico?! That blew my mind when I first found out about it several years ago!

    Maybe they were on the same drugs? He was listed as “Of interest” because when FM radio started playing “Doctor My Eyes” – one couldn’t tell if he would end up “Of interest” or “No comment”.

    Too mellow for me. Even at the age of eight! Was he a “mellow” smack addict? Like James [snooore] Taylor? I hated all of that stuff as a kid! The drugs and the music!
